Gay people have existed for ‘maybe 60 years,’ says Australian MP in shocking rant
An Australian MP has lashed out at gay people in a ridiculous rant, saying that “homosexual behaviour” from is responsible for suicides in the country.
Bob Katter, one of just four representatives who voted against Australia’s successful same-sex marriage bill just hours ago, also blamed LGBT people – who he said have only existed for a few decades – for murders.
If that wasn’t enough, the Member for Kennedy in Queensland also accused gay people of killing children by donating infected blood.
Katter, who has previously compared equal marriage to being eaten by a crocodile, sparked outrage with the rambling tirade, both in the House of Representatives and online.
During his rant, the anti-gay politician said: “The people advocating this proposition tonight, the LGBTIs, have maybe 60 years on their side.
“I have 3.5 million years of genetic programming on my side, because we human beings, they tell us, have been around for 3.5 million years.
“One thing that is absolutely certain is that we’ve all developed from heterosexual couples.”
Katter, who has claimed that homosexual people stole the word ‘gay,’ added that “this country continuously has the highest male juvenile suicide rates in the world”.
